More About Garrett M., Director of Growth
Garrett is a rocket scientist, techie and evening-bowl-of-ice-cream guy turned garden-loving veggie geek. As a native of Washoe Valley, Garrett grew up helping his mom in the garden and eating veggies fresh from the vine. After growing up and moving away for work, he grew accustomed to ice cream, burgers and fries, and generic supermarket tomatoes. He had almost forgotten how good garden-fresh food tasted. Garrett recently returned to his roots after an early career with SpaceX, co-founding a technology startup, and indulging in the hiker bum life on the Pacific Crest Trail.
He realized eating well is hard. The deck is stacked against us, in part due to the forces of business. That frustrated Garrett—so much, in fact that he started Down to Earth Composting to use those same forces to serve neighbors, family, and friends, sharing the power of composting with others, and making this a better community one garden at a time.
